Pain in the lower back radiating to the front side. Could this be nerve related?

i am 42 yr old female and healthy. i just had a physical and blood work and everything came out good. ive been having a very dull pain in my left lower back that seems to travel. it sometimes feels like it is going through the front. its more annoying than painful. could it be a nerve? when i get a massage it feels better but seems to come and go.

Neurologist 's  Response
hello ,
Your symptoms of dull aching pain in left lower back region ,radiating to front consistent with L)lumbar radiculopathy (Involvement of nerve root which arises from spina lcord) This usually is more common in females with obesity and calcium depletion.This makes bones and ligament softer and chances of mild disc protrusion and compressing roots.Since you does not have any weakness. You need not worry. You need neuralgic medicine which has to be started after assesing you clinically by neurologist and imaging after assesment
